I personally feel very, very weak with an underhand grip. If that's what you're referring to as a Yates row, I'd skip it. He did! After tearing his bicep, he went to an overhand grip. It's not a magic row.
Take a look at Mountaindog's videos on youtube. Do you see him using fancy grips? NOPE. He uses different angles of pulling. For grip, you want the maximal amount of pulling ability.
I have a hard time with under handed grips. It kills my wrists every time. If I am doing a straight bar then it will be over hand. But I do realize you need to attack the muscle from different angles. So for this reason I do use a under hand approach BUT I use dumbbells when I do this. Allows my wrists to my move independent of each other, as supposed to being locked in by a straight bar. (it works for me)
